Kiwis are infamous for being found wandering in all sorts of far flung places…
Nights, being adventurous types ourselves, is keen to have you share the colourful and curious tales of your interesting journeys… the places you've seen, the people you've met, the food you tasted - recently or expeditions you've had in times gone by - a trek you took either by foot or pedal or kayak or ship or sail or train, in the 21st or 20th century…
Our Own Odysseys on Tuesday evenings at about a quarter past seven. Please do get in touch to reminisce on the wonders of the world that were encountered while you either cycled through Cambodia, kayaked down the Amazon, hiked through Wales, scrambled up Kilimanjaro, sailed to the Seychelles, flew by hot air balloon over Mongolia etc, etc firstname.lastname@example.org
